Fruit of D'Vine

Fruit of D'Vine is the name of our monthly newsletter, based upon the biblical truth that each Christian is a “partaker of the divine nature” (2 Pet. 1:4-KJV), and that those who abide in Christ, the Vine, and are thus living truth, will bear godly fruit just as he did.

Magnifying Jesus Christ, The Living Way

December 2015

Well, here we are in the home stretch of yet another calendar year. Actually, “home stretch” is an apropos phrase, if we are stretching (extending ourselves) for the Lord Jesus and anticipating his “taking us home.” Contrary to popular Christian opinion, this does not mean by murdering us. Home is where the heart is, and our hearts are devoted to The Man who gave his life so that we might live forever. At his appearing, we will be with him, and thus “at home,” first in the heaven of heavens for about seven years, then in the Millennial Kingdom, and finally in God’s everlasting Paradise. And with each passing day we draw closer to that glorious moment!


Joy Has A Name - Jesus

November 2015

Elizabeth saw that heading and said, “Are you kidding? I make him laugh all the time.” And I said, “That’s not what I’m talking about.”

Hello, Christian Comedian. And you say, “Huh? What kind of salutation is that?” “Actually” (as our five-year-old granddaughter, Wendell Jane, begins many sentences), I think you’ll see that it is appropriate—or that it should be. How so? Well, here’s the definition of “comedy”: “a work of light and humorous character with a happy or cheerful ending; a dramatic work in which the central motif is the triumph over adverse circumstance, resulting in a successful or happy conclusion.”


The End Times - Good News ... We Win

October 2015

How sad that far too many dear Christians found themselves disappointed and disillusioned during the past few weeks when one or more of the fallacious “prophetic” prognostications they were counting on never took place. No, the Rapture did not occur on either September 23 or October 7, and the Major League baseball playoffs are in full swing.



September 2015

Well, it’s September, and I hope your summer was most enjoyable. Personally, I love having up to 15 hours of “Let there be light.” The Word of God shows us that He relates to us according to a linear timeline, and thus we know that He and the Lord Jesus are marking time together with us as the opportunities of our lives come and go. Our Father and our Lord flank us in the trenches of life, ever abiding to help us maximize those opportunities to do their will and glorify them.
